Spinning in the 1st half of February

Whilst watching some TV series on DVD's I have managed a lot of spinning so far this month.  500grams+. Thankfully the air conditioner is working well, and in 35+ days, I can still spin in the evenings.




I really need to start knitting some more...otherwise there is going to be an overflow!

Table Runners

Back to the UFO's and a few more table runners to finish.

completed UFO

This quilt has been sitting in the stash for quite a long time (at least 10 years I would think).  So it was time to finish it.  Silly really there wasn't a lot that needed to be done.  I lost interest as I didn't like all the fabrics together, even though I loved all the fabrics....does that make sense?

quilting stash

After seeing lots of Scrappy Trips Around the World blocks and quilts, Pattern from Quiltville, on Instagram, I couldn't help but go through the stash and try the pattern out. So much fun, and easy to do.
I started off doing 3 table runners for the nesting tables in our loungeroom

 Then I thought, maybe I will just make a small quilt with the leftover fabric, rather than put it back on the shelf.  Enough fabric "left-over for a large quilt, that covers the 2 1/2 seater couch.  Cameron thought the blocks were great, and he wanted to put them together into a pattern.  So after laying it out on the floor and him playing with the blocks for 1/2 hour, this is what he came up with.  It is now his favourite quilt.
Horray, I didn't put any fabric back on the shelf, I used up some extra blocks on the backing as well!
